1/72 Zvezda Su33d
After some time, and after some unpublished projects I decided to put something online.
So, this is the Zvezda’s Su33d in 1/72nd scale. This is the rebox of their Su27. In fact Su33 is naval version of Su27 so main parts are the same.
I did some other projects before this one, I got married in that time, so I really didn’t have any time.
Only few assembly problems were with cockpit putting together with he fron landing gear. Also, Zvezda’s color callouts are simply terrible. Their recommendatiotns are terrible. All shades are wrong. So I turned to Mig Su33 set. This is painted with their colors, but I’m not satisfied with their shades, especially with the main color which is a little bit brighter. Also, dark blue is a little bit darker. I tried to brighten it with oils, and darken the lighter shades.
I did jus a little bit of weathering because this is the new plane, used on aircraft carriers and it is maintaned with cautios.
So, this is it, a little bit for fun.
This is just preparing for the something much more bigger, and that is 1/32 Mig29 in Serbian colors which would be very serious project.
Stay safe, and keep modelling. Feel free to comment, cheers!
